In June 1987, Australia’s government granted permission for the production of platinum coins, a historic moment. These coins, minted by the prestigious Perth Mint, introduced Australia’s first platinum bullion coins in September 1988 with the iconic Australian Platinum Koala. Fast forward to 2023, and we are celebrating the 35th anniversary of this momentous release with the contemporary Platinum Koala from the Perth Mint. You can now acquire the 2023 1 oz Platinum Australian Koala Coins online from Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Each coin comes in protective acrylic capsules to safeguard its condition!
  • This coin pays tribute to the 35th anniversary of the Platinum Koala Series!
  • Mintage limited to 3,000 coins only!
  • Consists of One Troy ounce of .9995 fine platinum in brilliant uncirculated (BU) condition.
  • The face value of $100 (AUD) is fully backed by the Australian government.
  • The obverse side features the memorial bust of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
  • The reverse side proudly displays the original Australian Koala design from 1988.
  • It bears the unique P35 mint mark, commemorating the 35th anniversary.
  • An authentication feature is included on the reverse side.
  • The original reverse artwork was masterfully created by Michael Tracey.

Each of the 2023 1 oz Platinum Australian Koala Coins, available here, is individually packaged in protective acrylic capsules. In honor of the 35th anniversary of the Platinum Koala Series, the Perth Mint has resurrected Michael Tracey’s original 1988 artwork that graced the very first Platinum Koala coin.

Koalas primarily feed on eucalyptus leaves, which make up about 90% of their diet. They are highly selective in their choice of eucalyptus species and can be quite picky eaters.

On the obverse of the 2023 Platinum Australian Koala Coin, you’ll find the memorial bust of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. This design, created in 2015 by Jody Clark for the Royal Mint, depicts the Queen at the age of 89 and features the George IV State Diadem. This elegant bust represents the sixth and final effigy of the Queen to grace Australian coins.

The reverse design of the 2023 1 oz Platinum Koala Coins showcases Michael Tracey’s 1988 depiction of the koala, a design used on the first-ever Platinum Koala coin. In this design, the koala is portrayed in a front-facing relief, seated on all four legs. This side of the coin also includes the distinctive P35 mint mark, signifying the 35th anniversary of the series.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

How can I contact you?

Please feel welcome to call us toll free at 1(888) 989-7223 or use our Live Chat feature during normal business hours Monday through Friday, 08:00 a.m. to 06:00 p.m. CST. Alternatively, you can email us at help@silver.com and expect a response within 1 business day.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
